  1. It's funny how many of these comments are mocking this product when they seemingly have no idea of what bivys are or what they are intended for.. This product isn't competing with tents, it's competing with other bivys (and as far as I can tell, does so quite impressively).

    Bivys are not for everyone or every circumstance, but they make a lot of sense in certain situations, especially mountaineering. They are more stable in windy or rocky environments because they don't need to be staked down, your body weight holds them down. There are no poles to break except one small one which is not critical. And they are super fast to setup compared to a tent.

    Perhaps most importantly, require very little space- any nook that can fit your body, even if it's crammed under some bushes or in the middle of a steep trail (if you're desperate), spaces where you could never fit even a 1-man tent, a bivy will work in. I've been in all of these situations when thru-hiking.
    These also make sense if you're 'stealth camping' in a place where camping is not officially permitted or in a less than ideal spot, but you just need to discretely get some sleep, pack up quickly at first light, and get back on the trail.

    These days bivys have little to no advantage over tents as far as weight or volume, but there are plenty of other reasons they make sense in some situations. If you can setup a tent, of course it will be way more comfortable.

  2. While I like the look of this, but at £315 in the UK, it is a bit too much for me to justify spending on.

  3. Please tell me this is an April fools joke and it just got uploaded 13 days early?!?! Really, a sombrero?! 😂

  4. I just use a 1 person tent and NO. My Hubba NX 1 person packs up just as small and has a place to store all my gear and has a full size vestibule. These are not practical in my book. Rouge weather in high altitudes happen a lot.

  5. 😂 This is a joke or it should be! It’s just not practical at all an trying to do any of the things shone in this video in the rain definitely wouldn’t be comfortable or pleasant guaranteed

  6. Serious question: how does one cook in the rain if using a bivvy shelter system? I'm a tent camper so I cook in my vestibule if it's raining.

  7. She's able to cook and clean without leaving the comfort of her bed, whilst wearing a fashionable sombrero. No wonder she's so happy – Some maniac signed off on this promo vid. How did it happen ?

  8. Please… for the lover of GOD.


    I got rid of my alpine bivy because it was such a pain to get into.

  9. This just doesn't seem practical. A lot of neat ideas in the design room but in the field, I foresee a lot of disappointment. The old two pole clamshell was probably the best one you guys made for people who had to use a bivy in real weather. I don't see it on your site anymore.

  10. 1) Why is yellow, insects love this color ;p
    2) Is this is for outdoors, why the whole advertisement was filmed indoor?
    3) It looks very similar to army bivy, so for me, this products has no/small innovation. Yes, I have ideas on how to improve it.
